Welcome to my website.

My professional interests lie at the intersection of politics, economics and business and I am currently the first Fellow of the German Ministry of Finance where I work on fundamental policy questions.

Furthermore, I am a Research Associate of the Public Policy Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and at Cambridge University’s Centre for Business Research. Previously, I was John F. Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellow at Harvard University, Senior Visiting Fellow at LSE and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University.

I studied politics, economics and business at Trier University, different London universities and the University of Oxford.

I have commented on political and economic issues on major news channels such as CNBC, BBC, Sky News, Al Jazeera International, ZDF, France 24 and SBS Australia and have also been a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, DIE ZEIT, El Pais, Foreign Affairs and the New York Times.
